c4d.modules.mograph

class c4d.modules.mograph

Attributes

FIELD_EXECUTION_BLOCK_SIZEf
The size of a block that’s executed in an MP environment.
For single depth execution a value closer to 1200 is actually more optimal, with one group 600 and from then on for each group depth you can expect a drop of a third.
For general usage on current architectures this gives the best balance.

Type: Float

Functions Documentation

c4d.modules.mograph.GeGetMoData(op)

Returns the MoGraph data of an object.

Parameters

op (c4d.BaseObject) – The object.

Return type

MoData

Returns

The MoGraph data.

c4d.modules.mograph.GeGetMoDataSelection(op)

Retrieves the MoGraph clones selection.

New in version R18.020.

Parameters

op (c4d.BaseList2D) – Can be either a MoGraph Selection tag BaseTag(c4d.Tmgselection) or an object with a MoGraph Selection tag.

Return type

c4d.BaseSelect

Returns

The clones selection.

c4d.modules.mograph.GeSetMoDataSelection(op, selection)

Sets the MoGraph clones selection.

New in version R18.039.

Warning

Before R21, makes sure to call C4DAtom.SetDirty() after any usage of this method to properly updates the mograph object.
In R21 this bug was fixed so the next code is no more needed.
# mographObject is the host mograph object of the MoGraph Selection tag: BaseTag(c4d.Tmgselection).
mographObject.SetDirty(c4d.DIRTYFLAGS_DATA)
mographObject.Message(c4d.MSG_UPDATE)
Parameters
  • op (c4d.BaseList2D) – Can be either a MoGraph Selection tag BaseTag(c4d.Tmgselection) or an object with a MoGraph Selection tag.

  • selection (c4d.BaseSelect) – The clones selection to set.

Return type

bool

Returns

True if successful, otherwise False.

c4d.modules.mograph.GeGetMoDataWeights(op)

Return type

list of float

Returns

The clones weights.

c4d.modules.mograph.GeSetMoDataWeights(op, weights)

Sets the MoGraph clones weights.

New in version R18.039.

Warning

Before R21, makes sure to call C4DAtom.SetDirty() after any usage of this method to properly updates the mograph object. In R21 this bug was fixed so the next code is no more needed.

# mographObject is the host mograph object of the MoGraph Weight tag: BaseTag(c4d.Tmgweight).
# moSelTag is a BaseTag(c4d.Tmgweight)
moSelTag.SetDirty(c4d.DIRTYFLAGS_DATA)
mographObject.SetDirty(c4d.DIRTYFLAGS_DATA)
mographObject.Message(c4d.MSG_UPDATE)
Parameters
  • op (c4d.BaseList2D) – Can be either a MoGraph Weight tag BaseTag(c4d.Tmgweight) or an object with a MoGraph Weight tag.

  • weights (list of float) – The clones weights to set.
